From Wiki:

Tajín (styled TAJÍN) is a Mexican company that produces several varieties of condiment, most consisting primarily of chile peppers, lime, and salt.

The company's most popular product is a seasoning powder (called salsa en polvo in Spanish) consisting of chile peppers, salt, and dehydrated lime juice. The powder is tangy and spicy and is used to enhance the flavor of fruits and vegetables. The seasoning is widely available in Mexico and is commonly used as a condiment on the tables of many Mexican restaurants, to season mango and melon, and as a seasoning in micheladas, a beer cocktail.

It's the spicy/sweet thing that makes it so good. Especially the slight citrus on seafood (trout).

I put hot sauce on just about any dinner. My favorites are Tapatio and Cholula. Both come in packets. And if I can find it... Lodgepole has had these in the past are the Salsa Del Sol packets... the flavor in those is incredible. Rogue gave me a huge gallon ziplock bag full of hot sauce packets from taco bell and del taco and I"ve been using those for years as well. I love it in Mac & Cheese and Taco Rice especially.
